Abstract/Contents:Suggests that routine putting green maintenance can be divided into two categories, one which "embraces mowing, rolling, weeding, and the destruction of insect pests and control of fungus diseases," while the other "embraces the use of fertilisers, top-dressings, and composting [which] has a direct bearing on the soil." States that removing the grass clippings from 18 greens, or about 90,000 square feet would remove nearly 2,000 pounds of sulphate of ammonia, 200 pounds 20 percent superphosphate and 400 pounds muriate of potash. Reminds readers about "the law of the minimum" which implies "plant development is regulated by the available supply of that essential plant food element that is present in the soil in the least amount," and that all plants need definite proportions of nitrogen, phosphate, and potash to grow well. Supplies a formula for a "complete balanced fertiliser of undoubted quality."
